Quoting Usaf6986 (Thread starter): Did he go on vacation, his queue hasn't moved in alost 2 weeks, and since one of my shots has been moved to his queue i am just wondering.
Yep. He is taking a little time off due to health. Due to the amount of hours he puts into Airliners.net (thus being on his computer for a heck of a long time), he has been suffering from strain on his shoulders and back. He'll be back soon, everybody needs a break once in a while.

I appealed a shot about 5 days ago, and it was screened within 20 minutes.
Get well soon Johan! The site is continuing to run without you, but we are not seeing that many new features. The features can wait, but everything is running smoothly, so don't rush back until you are ready!

Quoting AndrewUber (Reply 3): I thought those shots would be screened by Mr. Watt (Headscreeners)?
Quoting JetAv8r (Reply 6): That's what I though aswell, I've had a shot in the queue for nearly a month now.
Assuming I have read the above correctly, my understanding is that Gary and the other Head Screeners now deal with the appeals that people make for their rejections. But screeners continue to refer photos to Johan himself that they believe are 'contentious' in some way or other, and require the "Boss's" final decision (such as where it is unclear to the screeners whether a photo displays characteristics potentially outside the rules of the site - balloons with bare-bottomed women on the side might have been an example of this).
